RAPID CITY, S.D. – What are YOU doing this summer?
That’s the big question being posed to undergraduate students by Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Health Board’s (GPTCHB) Northern Plains Native American Research Center for Health (NARCH), which is gearing up to offer summer research scholarships to Native students across the country.
In addition to making scholarships available to undergraduates who may already be enrolled in summer research programs throughout the Great Plains region, Northern Plains NARCH will work with unenrolled scholarship recipients to link them to educational and health-oriented institutions in the region offering summer research programs.
University of Nebraska Medical Center, National Institutes of Health, North Dakota State University, University of South Dakota, Sanford Research, University of North Dakota and South Dakota State University are some of the regional institutions offering summer research programs. The programs provide valuable opportunities for students to enhance their academic and research skills, putting those who apply to graduate school at an advantage.
These summer research programs afford attendees the following benefits:
- The chance to study in their chosen fields;
- A stipend with most expenses paid;
- Housing and transportation;
- Mentorship from seasoned professionals;
- Workshops and training sessions; and
- Opportunities to participate in academic research conferences.
Northern Plains NARCH’s scholarships provide supplemental summer research program funding for students.
